Say goodbye to stretch marks after giving birth

You have to deal with stretch marks after pregnancy, just like you have to deal with hectic schedules and swollen ankles. The marks that develop on your skin when it is stretched out are known medically as stretch marks or striae distensae (or striae gravidarum if they happen during pregnancy). Your skin is pulled taut over the newly formed mass when your body expands and grows quickly. Stretch marks are the result of the tissue beneath your skin or the middle layer of your skin rupturing due to extreme stretching. Your skin’s surface becomes visible with these tears. Stretch marks are not dangerous or health risks, but they can be unsightly and bothersome. Of course, pregnancy is not the only reason for stretch marks. Stretch marks can develop as a result of rapid weight gain, whether it be due to significant muscle gain or an excessive rise in body fat. If a teen experiences a particularly strong growth spurt, they may develop stretch marks. Having said that, it’s important to remember that up to 90% of pregnant women will get stretch marks. It’s not entirely clear why some women are fortunate enough to experience a stretch-mark-free pregnancy. However, there is evidence that suggests women who have stretch marks on their mothers or older sisters are more likely to develop the condition themselves, indicating that genetic factors may be at work. Stretch marks from pregnancy typically start to develop in the sixth or seventh month, when the baby’s growth really accelerates. They typically grow on the pregnant woman’s chest, thighs, hips, and buttocks. Although there are measures you can take to reduce the development of stretch marks while you’re pregnant, it’s likely that you’ll also need to treat them once your baby is born. We are confident that you are already fully aware of this fact if you have recently given birth.
